Re: New meeting of the Atlanta JMP User Group being planned now...
Yes, I'd like to see Atlanta grow a strong, friendly JMP Users group that meets face-to-face on a regular basis.
Days that work best for me: Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri
Times of the day that work best for me: Tentatively, maybe a lunchtime (11:30 - 1:00), possibly right after work (5:30 - 7:00), or later in the evening (6:30 or 7:00 to 8:00 or 8:30)
Parts of Atlanta I'd meet in: North Atlanta, Buckhead, Decatur, Chamblee, Embry Hills, Tucker, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody (others possible)
JMP Topics I'd love to hear: Predictive models and comparing modeling methods; data visualization approaches, JMP scripting for efficiency, JMP as an interface to R, databases, and other SAS products, survival analysis, process improvement monitoring using JMP and Six Sigma, and much more
Willing to speak or host the group?: Yes, I'd be willing to speak. Also, I'd need to check with our director, but if I get a "Yes" I'd be willing to host at our company's location near I-85 and Clairmont Road.
Willing to help lead the group? Yes, willing to HELP lead the group. I cannot do it all on my own.
We have a richness of JMP users in the Atlanta area, and I think we could support a user community that would benefit everyone from the curious, to beginners, to experienced and expert practitioners. I use JMP regularly for analytics and evaluation activities, but would encourage seeing a blended group of business professionals, analytic specialists, content experts, academics, industry users, scientists, and others join together for learning together and sharing. If others are willing to contribute a bit of their energy to help grow this community, let's make this happen.
